A police officer who raped his colleague in Northland last year can now be named as Jamie Foster.

Foster groped and later raped his female colleague in a Kerikeri motel they had been put up in during Waitangi commemorations last year.

The North Shore constable was found guilty of indecent assault and sexual violation after a two-week trial in the Auckland District Court last month.

On hearing the guilty verdicts, the 29-year-old lost his composure; swearing and yelling it wasn't fair in the dock.

Foster was refused continued name suppression ahead of his trial but kept his identity secret on appeal.

On Friday morning, his lawyer Paul Borich QC confirmed the appeal to the High Court had been abandoned.
